Wood Storks from Brazoria NWR

The Wood Storks were out in force on this trip to Brazoria NWR.  There were about 15 of them hanging out when I got there and another 10 showed up later.  Some stayed in the back of the pond and others would walk around feeding and got very close.  It was fun to watch and shoot.  Got some full frame shots at 700mm with my 1.4x that I’ll post later.  I’ve seen Wood Storks at a distance before but never this close up.  Was a very good time.  Went back again for the next two weekends and never saw them in numbers like this or as close up.

Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm F4 IS II lens with 1.4x III teleconverter out the car window.
